Lovely animation from behind the Iron Curtain
The animation in this is delightful, especially the sequence with the lion and Santa Claus' starship. The dubbing isn't as bad as many other commenters have posted.

Wounder what the actual Russian said
The animation is really nice, but the dubbing in this is horrid, I wounder what the Russian was actually saying, I bet there were some well placed remarks about communism and how we are all the same when it came to getting from Africa to Antarctica, and the wind storm was capitalism, but the English would not say that, because this was dubbed in 1959.

I thought that this was cute and a good clip for children.
